Children Under the Stairs


(photo: Ren Rebadomia)

seen, but not heard
born unwanted

children under the stairs

crust of bread
if you are good
but only
if you are good

spiders and shadows
are your friends
dust engravings
make art
cracks of light
on lucky days

keeps you whole

stay strong,
darling ones

someone will rescue you
I hope

you will no longer be
children under the stairs
